Good Thoughts Were Not Enough
I know the "The vast majority of child hostages are alive" but at least 200 people are dead and lots more are physically wounded. Nevermind the psychological terror that is going to follow all the hostages.
Children should be sheltered. They should not be "naked and bloodied children, paralyzed by fear" or the main subject of articles with headlines like these:
A Bloody End, Anna Kuchment, Newsweek
Bloodbath: 150 hostages die as siege ends in mayhem, Nick Paton Walsh, The Guardian
